    Easy answer is the Whites followed by wherever you start. The Mahoosuc section is slow going as well as parts of Maine when it rains. The northern half of the 100 mile wilderness is not difficult.

    I can’t say I felt isolated on the AT. I had lots of solitude during the day by design but camping near water source/shelters meant there were always people around. Then you add in day and weekend...

    To add on, I also budget for how long I think I’ll be out of work when I get back and before I can find a job. The last thing I want to think about when I’m hiking is how I’m going to pay bills.
